I have to use the telephoto to get the shots I'm used too

Summary: It is a great little camera and cheap, but my first experience with it was to take a picture of me and my new girlfriend at dinner and the field of view at 5 foot was more background than us. That is my big negative and one that I think people should know about. Outside of that it is a great camera. The menus are well thought out and easy to use without reading the manual. It uses a standard micro usb cable (a big plus) to charge.
Summary: I have a Canon S100 and older Pentax DSLR for myself. I wanted to purchase a camera for my mother, who has minimal experience with newer tech. I was hoping to get a point and shoot which took better pictures than the throw away cameras she bought at the store. I wanted one cable to both charge the camera and transfer pictures and video. No changing batteries or taking out SD cards to complicate the learning process.
